    Loved the camera pans on this film. Sound is incredibly power-full. Hard to follow the story, but keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspense. Unlikely traditional French Film, and story telling.

    Saw this at a festival...its a beautiful, simple film. True gem and very moving. That bar scene is one of the best scenes in cinema.

    Superbly played and realised, this stays with you.

    Claire Denis, not always an easy director, is in top form here directing an almost all-black cast with grace and delicacy. For the happy few, this is French art house cinema at its unpretentious best.

    Claire Denis’ latest may appear whisper-thin on the surface, yet it’s marvelously profound, illuminating the love between a father and daughter but also highlighting the difficulty of relinquishing what most people spend a lifetime putting into place.
